Can't see floppy device booting from Tru64 5.1a CD

Hopefully this is an easy one. I had to replace the system disk on a DS10 running Tru64 5.1a. I've booted from the OS CD after replacing the disk with a new one and now I can't mount or see the floppy drive.

I can see it at the chevron prompt and I see the controller with the hwmgr -sh component command, but I don't see the drive with the hwmgr -sh dev comand.

I have tried doing a dn_setup -boot, but had no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Turns out there was a hardware problem with the floppy drive. We could see and access the floppy once the bad drive was replaced.
